This week I was given the very exciting opportunity to try out the McLaren MP4-12C supercar, as part of a driving experience which took place at a track where speed...
Tron was without a doubt one of the biggest groundbreaking films of the 1980's, mixing the high octane action of cheesy 80's action with the then futuristic glow of photographic techniques.
As well as Jeff Bridges flawless acting as a guy who is sucked into a video game, one of the cool standout features of the 80's hit was definitely The Light Cycle race, constantly parodied in cartoons and films for years.
Due to Tron being such a hit, it wasn't long until it got a reboot with Tron: Legacy in 2010 - and much to Tron fans glee, The Light Cycle...
We are pitting boys against the girls in the age old question of who is the better driver? In this feature, points do not mean prizes and will there be stereotypes to discuss? Of course.
Not really assigned to any one gender. Everyone is at risk of this one, you have to take in to account personality, what's happened that day, heat etc.
The equations are a little something like this:
male testosterone + cooped up in a car = caged gorilla
Female oestrogen + cooped up in a car = caged tiger mum
Men are likely to be more physically violent, whereas...
I had been asked to join Hyundai on an adventure trip in the Scottish Highlands with adventurer, Andy Torbet. Andy spent many years in the Army and is now a keen diver, climber, mountaineer, kayaker and seemingly anything else outdoorsy that is a little adventurous. It was all part of the launch for the new generation Santa Fe which we would be driving and sleeping in. Yes, that's right sleeping in.
With slight trepidation, I was chosen out of our team (I still think this was some sort of sly trick, eh eh?). In spite of receiving an itinerary and...
By now many of us will have heard about or seen the hybrid electric buses circling the city of Liverpool - that's right I said Liverpool, not London.
After an array of manufacturers had a stab at the city based eco market - Citroen and its C-Zero, Nissan and its Leaf - it seems cities are taking more of a hands on approach to reducing inner city emissions with the introduction of frugal public transport.
The most popular example of this movement is of course Boris Johnson and his Source London campaign. This campaign saw frugal electric buses and vehicles like the...
Audi has launched a new YouTube video starring both past and present Spock actors from the science fiction hit, Star Trek.
As many will already know, Star Trek Into Darkness film has just hit the silver screen. The new Star Trek see's Zachary Quinto taking on the role of Spock - previously played by Leonard Nimoy.
The main talking point of the film is the comical way in which Audi compares its Audi S7 model (new Spock) to a Mercedes CLS model (old Spock).
Another talking point of the advert is that Mazda are officially the automotive partner of Paramount Pictures, meaning...
Museums are great. They give you an insight into past years of amazing history, whether it is art, war or, in this case, the automotive industry.
On a recent trip down south to Gaydon, I found myself gazing at some of the automotive world's most intriguing treasures at the Heritage Motor Museum.
Walking around the museum, I took a few snaps of a number of interesting cars, some old, some new.
So, sit back and enjoy a quick, virtual, 'Wikipedia-esque' walkthrough of the Heritage Motor Museum.
Sunbeam 1000 HP Mystery (1926)
This is essentially a 1920's version of the Bugatti Veyron. Built as a...

The Ford Focus is one of the top small family cars around, it's a good all rounder - handling city driving just as well as country lanes.
Other features that are appealing are the seat belt reminder so no little ones can try to escape and the dog compartment if you upgrade to the estate so you don't have...
On this day nineteen years ago the iconic Formula One racing driver Ayrton Senna passed away following a fatal accident whilst leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. To this day he remains the last driver fatality in the sport F1.
For years during and after his racing career, Senna has been frequently acclaimed as one of the best Formula One drivers of all time.
Both public polls and other F1 drivers alike have frequently remarked on the Brazilian driver's remarkable natural talent for pace and race craft on the circuit.
Ayrton Senna is also one of the most successful F1 drivers to...
There are certain cars that are so massively popular you can expect to see them all around the world - the best selling/award winning Ford Fiesta for example.
But with a change of scenery, comes a shift in automotive popularity, something of which I myself found to be true on a recent trip to Rome.
While exploring the streets of the gladiatorial city, I took a few snaps of some of the cars which I found to be intriguing, rare or downright strange.
The Citroen 2CV began its journey in 1948 and has since become one of the coolest looking vintage cars...
First of all, the reason we have picked just three is because, well three is bad enough. We have scoured the archives and found three of the most controversial car adverts in the world.
These ads have pushed the boundaries of creative marketing and in all three instances have crossed the moral line.
Although an advert is supposed to catch your eye and keep your eyes glued to the screen, these three adverts cross some contentious boundaries that make you think of anything but the actual product it is selling.
Take a look at our pick of the three most controversial car...
